from the bulletin:

BRITON FOUND DEAD IN MAGALLUF

The body was recovered by Guardia Civil special divers yesterday. The Guardia Civil have launched an investigation into the death of a 21-year-old British holiday maker whose body was found floating in the sea yesterday,.
The young man was on holiday in Magalluf with a group of friends and on Tuesday night they all went out drinking in Punta Ballena but, that was apparently the last time he was seen. He failed to return to his hotel and the victim’s friends reported him missing.
Early yesterday morning, a holiday maker out snorkelling near Torrenova, swam across the body some 300 metres out to sea and raised the alarm.
A Guardia Civil special, unit of divers were deployed to the scene and divers from the Big Blue diving centre in Son Matias also helped, one of the members of staff also works for the Civil Protection department and accompanied by the Guardia Civil in a second rib.
The tourist who had raised the alarm also accompanied the rescue team to guide them to where he had found the body.
The body was plucked from the water and taken to the port in Palmanova.
Police said that there were no signs of foul play, just a bump to one of the victim’s knees.
The youngster was still wearing a T-shirt, Bermuda shorts and trainers.
The victim’s friends were taken by the police to the port to identify the body and the Guardia Civil have also informed the family.
It is thought that the cause of death was accidental but a full investigation is under way to confirm that theory.

How sad. I expect his friends will have nightmares over this, If it were me I'd be torturing myself for not staying with him.
The 'not knowing' *exactly* what happened isn't good.

I remember our holiday in Ayia Napa. A young Scottish couple in our hotel went into the sea on their first day. He got hit by a speedboat that wasn't meant to be in that section of sea. They worked on him on the beach but no joy. The young lass ( I say young but we were only in our early 20's ourselves then) sat huddled watching the attempts, with elbows in and two hands clasped together , near her mouth shivering and trembling. I'd say it was shock. Funny how I can remember it in such detail. This seems like he fell in drunk. When you're that age you think you are invincible.
